“He who plants a tree, plants a hope”
Over recent weeks, COP 26 has been at the forefront of our daily news, with representation from nearly 200 countries from all corners of the globe highlighting the damaging effects of climate change on our planet. The outcome of this meeting has been the ‘Glasgow Climate Pact’ agreement to accelerate action on climate change this decade.
We may consider our role as miniscule in the bigger, world-wide picture and this assumption may be correct in our understanding that we, as individuals, cannot do much to correct the rising imbalance of oxygen and carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere.
However, we can change this mind-set to one of ownership of the problem, so that we leave our planet a better place for future generations to enjoy a healthy, sustainable and happy life, surrounded by the beautiful trees that we have planted as our legacy.
